These are delicious and healthy! Great for Breakfast or dessert. I like to make a huge batch and freeze the left overs as toaster waffles for a later date. I'm done with Eggos.
- 3⁄4 cup applesauce
- 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 4 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 4 eggs
- 3 cups low-fat milk
- 1⁄2 cup apple juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated
- Combine flours, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg in a large mixing bowl.
- In another bowl, whisk eggs and add milk, apple juice, ginger and apple sauce.
- Add wet ingredients to dry and blend.
- Cook in a preheated waffle iron, until golden.
- Serve with honey, syrup, sliced apples or your favorite topping.
Great texture and consistency. Didn't have fresh ginger, barely sprinkled powdered ginger in (it's recommended not to do that in other recipes because of taste differences). Has a very strong clove smell when cooking, but is not overpowering when eating. Haven't finished making entire batter yet, but guestimate 18-20 waffles in my little waffle iron (it makes 2 4X4 inch waffles at a time). Mine made 14 waffles and 8 pancakes. I got tired of standing over the waffle iron. ;) Good recipe! Will freeze uneaten portion to toast later.
Oh. My. Goodness! These are fantastic! Mine weren't exactly low-fat, since I used up some whole milk that was taking up space in my fridge -- ;) -- but the result was wonderful nonetheless. The size of my waffle iron allowed me to get 13 gorgeous waffles out of the batch, and it was a good thing there were so many -- they were so tasty, I ended up eating two right away, and my fiance polished off three in one sitting! :) The rest are going into my freezer for quick breakfasts later on. I served these topped with Cracker Barrel Fried Apples #106262. Thanks for sharing a recipe I know I will make again!
I made these this morning and both my girls gobbled them up. They both ate 2 huge waffles. I will definately be making these again. Thanks for the recipe.
